« 16th Century Holography, sort of... | Main | Fix for Vista waking up in wrong screen orientation on HP EliteBook 2730p tablet »

November 03, 2008



As frustrated as I was that my 2730p came with XP instead of Vista pre-installed, I don't believe the 2730p was supposed to ship with Vista.

At least, all of the models on the HP web site when I placed my order were listed as including Vista Business, but as having a custom downgrade to XP installed.

For what it's worth, I didn't have the Portuguese language problem when I installed Vista from an external DVD drive, either. Maybe it was the time zone (I'm on the east coast), or maybe I just lucked out!


It's possible I could have read it wrong, although even the HP person in India said she showed it as having Vista factory instslled.

One point of confusion could be my SKU is very new, one of the first 2 configs with Gobi wireless.

Are you liking Vista on your table?
